How do I use MMS to save texts from phone to computer?
Posted on 2012-09-10
I am looking for a way to directly save my longer text messages (MMS) directly to my Gmail account. I have found an App that does this for SMS messages with one touch of a button.
It is called SMS Backup and with it I simply enter my gmail name and press Backup Now, and it sends the smaller SMS text messages directly to an SMS folder located within my gmail Inbox.
I want the same thing with the longer MMS texts. To be able to do a one click Backup Now (in some App) for the MMS that will save it to my Gmail MMS folder within my Gmail Inbox.
But I have been unable to get MMS to react the same way SMS behaves.
I would like to try the Handcent SMS App. It seems like it might be capable of doing what I want to do. But I don't know how to use it like the way I describe. Is someone familiar with how to get Handcent to recognize a text?
When I press the MMS+ button, it says 'No files have been uploaded. Start uploading, now!'
Uploading what?, I ask.
Uploading New File.
Well, how do I select or name a new file? What I guess it wants me to do is select a file to upload. I would therefore want to select my MMS text.
I can find no way to do this or to rename it, nor do I know how to find and/or select it in my new file manager app.
I just downloaded an App called ASTRO File Manager/Browser that I can possibly use. Does anyone know how I can use it to do what I want to do with MMS texts?
Many MMS Apps want to save the MMS text to the SD card. I don't necessarily want to do this. I want it to go directly to my gmail Inbox.
So I am wondering if there is an alternate way of perhaps: selecting the text message (How?-I can't find out how to do this)...putting it into the ASTRO File Manager (perhaps having to rename it)...opening Handcent...selecting the newly named text (I think I can do this)...and somehow Send it to Gmail, (not sure how to do this).
This is what I want to accomplish. I hope someone can help. Thanks.
